    Questions remain after Sentinel police chief is shot, detained man is released

    Something is very wrong in this news story. How many unarmed people have been shot and killed by police during home searches? How many armed citizens have been killed by police during home searches? And this guy gets off after shooting the local police chief??

    Questions remain after Sentinel police chief is shot, detained man is released

    SENTINEL — The police chief here survived being shot in the chest Thursday while responding to a reported bomb threat, and the man who authorities say shot him was allowed to walk free later in the day. Sentinel Police Chief Louis Ross was shot in the chest three times and once in the arm Thursday morning after breaking down the front door and entering a house at 205 S 4, Sentinel Mayor Sam Dlugonski said. The chief was wearing a bulletproof vest that was loaned to him by a sheriff’s deputy minutes before the raid on the home. He survived the shooting, and authorities said the vest saved his life.

    Dlugonski and a neighbor on S 4 both said the man detained in the shooting was Dallas Horton, who lives at 205 S 4. Investigating authorities did not release the man’s name.

    Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said the man who shot the chief was released after hours of questioning when they determined they didn’t have enough evidence to arrest him.“Facts surrounding the case lead agents to believe the man was unaware it was officers who made entry,” OSBI wrote in a news release.

    If the Chief didn't yell "Police!" or similar when breaking in the door and got shot (this is Oklahoma) I'm surprised he's not dead. The guy thought it was someone trying to harm him and he shot. I'm guessing it depends on Oklahoma laws.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
